Ironsides couldn't believe her eyes at the size of the Krell attack. She was used to the Krell rarely varying from their usual numbers when attacking- just enough to be a massive irritation but never so much as to truly wipe Alta off the map. She never had understood why; she was fairly certain the Krell had the numbers to do so. But the fleet of six ships she saw approaching made even less sense. The Krell had to know that the attack was futile. Ironsides smelled a trap, but the attack was still an attack. She radioed into the comm link of an available flight, one of her best. "Shard Flight, I need some fighters for an unusually small skirmish. Who's in?" Welcome to QF55: Battle of Traitors! I will be the GM for this game, and @Araris Valerian will be the IM. Here are the rules for this game, and they're also in doc form: Signups will end in a little over a week on Monday, August 23rd at 7:30AM, PST. The game will begin shortly afterwards with the normal rollover time of 8:00AM PST. I'll be gone camping some of the days during signups but will be back a few days before the game starts. For flavor purposes, this game takes place in an alternate version/timeline of Detritus, before the events of Skyward. RP Characters would benefit from a Callsign.

Ironsides stared down her crew as they arrived. It wasn't as many as expected, but they should be more than capable of taking down the few Krell ships approaching. Ironsides read off their Callsigns to herself as they prepared their ships, knowing that if some didn't return it would make it that more painful. She didn't care. If she were sending pilots into battle- any battle, even this small one- she wanted to know who they were, what they looked like. Maximum, Vandal, Lemon... Pegleg, Fib, Ghost... Steel, Bad Wolf, and Impostor. Ironsides thought. Huh. She didn't recognize that last one. It should have been the first clue. But Ironsides was still in a strange mindset from the Krell's odd attack. So she dismissed the thought. And up went Shard Flight. She tapped into their comm line, raising an eyebrow at the radio playing alongside it, though said nothing. All flight members reported in, heading for the Krell in formation. The aliens were far out, long past the base. It took the ships a decent amount of time to reach them. Ironsides was satisfied by how quickly they overtook the Krell. She relaxed. Guess I was worried for nothing. Then screams filled her headset. She sat up, alert. "Ghost is down!" someone yelled. "By who!" barked Ironsides, phrased as a command and not a question. "By Impostor... oh." the same pilot responded. "Scud. Hold on, Admiral." After a few tense moments, the pilot spoke. "I got them. But how could this happen?" Ironsides knew. Oh, she knew all too well. "The Krell have hidden among our ranks." She said, voice uncharacteristically weak. "They never fly alone. Impostor wasn't the only... impostor." She forced her voice to firm up. "But we better make sure that Ghost is the only casualty." Callsign: Ghost has died! They were a DDF Pilot and an NPC! Callsign: Impostor has died! They were a Krell Commander and an NPC! The game has begun! The cycle will end in a bit over 24 hours, on Friday, August 27th at 8:00am PST. There will be a majority execution today, with no vote minimum. Tied votes will result in a random decision. PMs are closed for the duration of the game. Don't forget to submit your actions! There is an inactivity filter in place of two cycles, though depending on the situation it may be less because of how few players we have. If you fail to post during this timeframe you will be warned, and then replaced or killed. Because of the player count it'd be really nice to see everyone active, so please and thank you If you didn't receive a PM, please PM me as soon as you can. Player List:
